I, for one, love budget makeup! I mean, not the absolute roadside type, but you know – brands like Eyetex Dazller, Elle 18, etc that sell makeup cheaper than even Maybelline and Garnier without compromising too much on the quality!
These days branded nail polishes too, have crossed the 100 rupee mark and it’s really hard to get a good nail polish that is under Rs 100, with the good ones like Lakme, Maybelline and Revlon ranging from Rs 150-250.

And while we are on nail polish, let me make one thing clear – I love blue nail polish. Blue is my go-to nail colour. I think I have 5 or 6 blue nail polishes overall and my blue mania isn’t going to stop anytime soon. I love blue on nails. It’s girly, edgy, chic and trendy all at once. What’s more, most shades of blue don’t look unflattering on Indian skin tones, unlike greens with which, I feel, one has to be more careful.
Put pocket-friendly and blue nail polish together, and here is my next post on 3 lovely blue nail polishes under Rs 100! All three are different shades of blue so take your pick 🙂
This nail polish is a lovely medium true blue shade. I’ve reviewed this shade earlier on MABH and I had said back in that review as well that this is a lovely summer and monsoon shade. The beauty of this shade is that it will suit a lot of skin tones! It is a classic universal blue, the shade of blue that comes to mind when you think of blue nail polish.
Price: Rs 50
Where to get it?: Available at all Elle 18 Counters
2. New U Nail Enamel 08 Cool Blue:
New U stores by Dabur have recently opened up in all major malls and they have their own nail polish line. I like these nail polishes because they are inexpensive and yet come in trendy colours. Cool Blue is a bright, almost like a lighter electric blue shade with lots of shimmer. It’s a very trendy, young shade. However, it may wash out darker skin tones, so be careful with this one.
Price: Rs 40
Where to get it?: Run to any mall with a New U store!
3. Flormar Plus Quartz Nail Enamel:
I was really excited about this article only for this shade. This is my most favorite nail polish EVER so you are not allowed to dislike it (just kidding… or am I?) This is an absolutely gorgeous midnight blue with a gel like finish and shine with a splash of extremely fine shimmer particles. It is just one of the most perfect shades I have seen in a nail polish! The quality and finish of Flormar nail polishes is brilliant and they can give any high-end brand a run for its money.
I really recommend these polishes in general. This shade is just to die for 😀 The gel finish makes it look 5 times more expensive than it really is! I am not sure but I think this is number 099.
(The finish of this with a transparent top coat is similar to the Lakme Absolute gel stylist range that has been launched recently!)
Where to get it?: This is also available at New U Stores
I hope you all liked this post 🙂
